Late period although I have the loop
I there I have had the loop in for almost 8 years and I have always been on a sport on 28 day cycle. I have however missed my period now. I am 6 days late, I have done a home pregnancy test as well as a blood test, both were negative. Were these tests done to soon. Could there be another reason for the absence of my period.

Absent periods could be due to a number of things apart from pregnancy. Give it time and if no periods see a gynae for further investigations.
